The source tape was in such poor condition that I wouldn't be surprised if they pulled it from the Archive on that account. Not only was there tape wobble to drive a person up the wall at times, but there were also several incomplete songs. I made a double CD set of this when the lossless files were available for download, and I had to splice and crossfade and so on, even rearranging the song sequence to make a listenable set. Turned out great but it's not really kosher, if you know what I mean. But because I labored over it I'm very fond of it. It's a lot of fun, basically a scrapbook as opposed to a "complete show." I'd be happy to trade for something comparable.
